Online PR News – 20-May-2011 – – White Gold or Mayan Sea Salt has been the subject of numerous books and scholarly papers written about the trade routes of the ancient Mayans. Some have estimated that 3 to 6 tons of sea salt per day had to be transported by canoe and on human backs into the interior to supply the Mayan people whose population then is estimated to have been greater than the population of the same region today. This sea salt was produced on both sides of Central America in what is now Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, and even into Honduras and El Salvador. Recently discovered archeology sites (many now underwater) attest to the vastness of this ancient enterprise. Our FDA-registered operation is within walking distance of one of the Mayan sites.

One benefit of sea salt over table salt is that it contains less sodium overall. Table salt is highly refined and what is left after this refining process is almost pure sodium chloride. It is mined from the earth, so it starts off as a raw form of sodium chloride with other beneficial minerals mixed in. However, the refining process strips these other natural minerals away, leaving a higher per-granule sodium content behind. Granule for granule of table salt, you are getting a higher sodium content. Sea salt also contains the necessary minerals of magnesium, calcium, potassium, and bromide, to name a few. You don't get these additional minerals with table salt, because they have all been stripped away by high-heat processing.

Not all salts are created equal.
